Dressing up for a night out with friends or a family wedding usually entails us squashing and squeezing ourselves into shape wear that we can hardly breathe in, to be able to look good .
So, we’ve arrived at that time of the year when a kurti becomes an absolute wardrobe essential. Spring as we know it, calls for the beginning of a long summer and one must know how to glide through it with what we own.
We give you 5 different ways in which we can add some oomph to the otherwise “basic” kurti.
Wake up for college or work with absolutely no clue about what to wear? Simply try wearing your kurti with a pair of printed palazzos and some comfortable flats. A neutral-coloured sling bag with gold accessories completes this casual look. One cannot go wrong with this fun and trendy outfit for the day!
For those who don’t mind taking the risk to try out something new, this “tomboy” way of wearing a kurti could work like a charm! All you need to do is wear it with a pair of black culottes, a long waistcoat and some sliders. This look is not only androgynous but also very effective!
Of course the safest way to wear a basic kurti is the ethnic way. However, an indo-western approach may add a little more character to the look. Wear it with a bright-coloured maxi skirt, along with an ethnic embroidered or mirror-work jacket. This is a fun look and can also be accessorized with tribal statement jewellery.
That ’70s Vibe:
With the ’70s trend back in full swing this spring/summer, a basic kurti would make a perfect top for this kind of look. Nothing shouts “Boho” more than bell-bottom jeans, a loose printed kimono, and a brown suede sling bag with fringes. This is a casual day look, which you can further accessorize with some chunky earrings and hand accessories.
Formal in White
A formal look in a kurti? It is possible! Contrary to what one might think, a kurti can work like magic when putting together a formal look, once teamed with a pair of white parallel trousers. To accessorize and enhance this look, you can add a statement necklace, embellished clutch and a pair of strappy heels.
